Russian vs. Georgian justifications in 2008 South Ossetia war: Has Russia (yes) or Georgia (no) been wrong in regards to ceasefires?

  • Russia is Wrong

    Russia has been wrong with respect to the cease fires implemented in the 2008 South Ossetia war. Although both sides committed indiscriminate acts of violence in the five day war, Russian forces carried out targeted bombings of civilian areas of Georgia, causing a large number of civilian deaths and casualties.

  • Georgia needs to recognize the sovereignty of South Ossetia

    South Ossetia belongs to Russia, most of the population in South Ossetia are Russian. The predominant faith there is Eastern Orthodox. Georgia continues to break the ceasefire agreements. Georgia has a plan to retake South Ossetia, they have continually been moving forces along their borders. This is in direct violation of the ceasefire agreement.
